Changing focus infuses more joy into our lives

Our days can be filled with more “must-do” than “want-to-do” tasks. After all, someone has to grocery shop, pay bills and earn a living.

It isn’t your fault you’re ill

Illness happens to everyone. Sure, it helps to lead a healthy life, but severe physical trials can strike anyone at any time. People ask me if they are to blame for their poor health.

3 steps to fully living: release, accept and receive

Everything that comes to us is on God’s schedule, not ours.

Intuitive abilities aren’t evil

My transcendent night with the spirits in the Goldfield Hotel opened my third eye. Suddenly, I found myself receiving divine messages, and started seeing and hearing energies. I thought I’d lost my mind. But even worse, I’d believed I was destined for hell. Why? Because a church I’d once belonged to preached the evils [...]

Grieve even though you know your crossed over loved ones are well

In August, my dear friend, Jean Millay Ph.D., a pioneer in the study of the survival of consciousness beyond death, graduated from Earth School. She approached this transition from the physical to spirit realms with grace, joy and anticipation. Our friendship was filled with amazing conversations and I could never absorb all the wisdom [...]

The more you release, the more you’ll receive

Free will presents the illusion of power The Supreme Being gave us free will—the opportunity to choose our own way of thinking and acting.
